After I left LOKI I decided to flip my WoW experience on its head. The night after /gquitting I returned to the night elf starting areas to work on quests towards Loremaster. It reminded me of the reasons I fell in love with my druid in the first place: the sereneness, the artwork, the feeling that good would always conquer evil. It also felt very backwards. There was no endgame, next boss, better loot, harder achievement I was used to striving for. Instead of progress I was completing. Backwards, but still WoW and still enjoyable. Maybe I was backwards the whole time I was raiding and didn't even know it???
"If you've been writing long enough that people get curious about who you are as a person, then stuff like [why your guild sucks, why your raid leader sucks, why your server sucks, why your life sucks] isn't actually going to send them elsewhere; it's a sort of privilege conferred on bloggers who have already earned an audience."
- Yakra took me out on a Tuesday night. OMG thats a RAID night!
- Questing on our mains in noobie zones and in Icecrown. Yup, Icecrown still isn't done.
- Going for walks. Probably 4 or 5 in the last week.
- Going on a NINE MILE HIKE yesterday! It was so beautiful. There were pretty trees. I thought of all of you!!!
- Talking about buying a piece of land or starting a business instead of recruiting DPS.
- Yakra picked me up and spun me around while we were on this one walk and pretended he was going to throw me down a hill. I know its cheesy, but those moments had been missing.
- Watching anime.
- Doing some projects around the house we had been procrastinating on.
- Really good s... um... intimate moments. Yeah, lets call it that.
- Just talking and listening and loving.
